Day 25 duck egg.  I was weighing and laying down for lock in and came across what looks like a pip to me.  When I candled, I couldn't see anything but I didn't look at it very long because it freaked me out and I wanted to get it back into the incubator.  Total of ten eggs so it was sitting out waiting it's turn to be weighed.  What should I do?

Well my early pipper is progressing.  She's not exactly following protocol.  She pipped early, pipped high in the air cell and her zipping seems to be going down the egg towards my 'X' and not around the egg.  She's very vocal this morning.

 

I forgot to mention that I have quite a bit of condensation on the windows.  Will it hurt her if I quickly open and wipe them dry?

Although at this point with how open that pip is, I don't think I'd open the bator unless you really want to end up in full on assist... peeping is great, still making progress too, right? I've had some odd direction zippers just as long as it keeps going it should be ok...

Bug and Boo 2 are doing wonderfully.  Boo 2 didn't take a poop until day 2.  She kept doing the backing up thing but nothing.  There was no pasty butt. But, I put her in some warm water to see if that would move things.  About an hour later it did.


So, they hatched on day 26. 8 eggs remain in the bator and 2 external pips today, day 28 late this PM.  I freaked on the below guy because it was doing nothing after several hours.  I got blood and stopped. He's just sitting there now, definitely not ready to come out.  Probably scared of what I will do next.  I'm going to leave town and let nature do it's thing, lol.  This is agony.

 

Arrow pointing to the blood and the circle is his toe.


6 eggs with nothing going on.

I'm concerned with number 3 and spraddle leg.  He was on the grided incubator floor and then onto paper so I'm not sure why his legs are so far apart.  Can they come out of the egg with spraddle leg?

yes they can get it, you can do the leg wrap or try the cup first since she just hatched. 

and not sure I gave u this but it has tons of links at the bottom I put in too....   Duckling Care

WEAK CHICKS, Spraddle legs, ODD legs, ETC.....

 

There are options of taping chicks legs together, HOWEVER, those are horrible and other chicks pick on them, they are non stop chirping and falling over, pain in the butt period....

 

If you can put them in a cup that forces the feet into position under them it can work a lot quicker and less stressful for the chicks. Thanks to a tip from BYC member Blarney love that chick! Just dont overheat them in the cup, take them out to feed and water them and give them some exercise and see how they are doing!

Wouldn't have mattered; I'd already closed up shop when you posted. Thanks for the attempt, though.

Every incubator is different, but with mine I fell it up and it will go to around 36% to 41%. Depending on how it is outside. Then I let mine run dry. Takes about 2 days. It will drop to 17%. Then that morning fill it back up. So its about a 2 days cycle. I never candle any more until I take them out on the 18th day and then they go to the hatcher, which runs between 65% to 75%. They go in there on Thursday. They come out on Mondays. What ever dont hatch, just dont hatch. Which usually is 1 to 2 eggs depending how many I have in there. 

 

I dont help them pip, dont help them hatch nor circle air sacks or anything. To me 1 or 2 eggs not hatching is no big deal to me. I can hatch as many I want every week.
